MSI NF980-G65With all of the attention being paid to AMD and Intel’s impressive chipset lineups there’s still Nvidia’s lineup to consider. Sure the company has had some knocks as of late but they still produce some interesting options if you’re going for the all out performance angle.

TechwareLabs has a look at the MSI NF980-G65 Motherboard with its AMD Phenom II support and plenty of overclocking options to get the most out of your processor. Here’s a peek:

Immediately from the specifications we can that the MSI NF980-G65 is an nVidia board through and through supporting triple SLI courtesy of its nForce 980a chipset. A host of other options round out this this overclockers dream including support for overclocking the RAM all the way to 2133MHz. As a legacy free board the MSI NF980-G65 does not have any serial or parallel ports but does include support for PCI-E Gen 2 as well as RAID and 6 SATA ports. In fact the only thing we are suprised about is the lack of an e-SATA port on the rear.

A great option if you’re sticking with the Nvidia side of the fence and want SLI gaming performance with AMD’s Phenom II lineup.
